Workshop: Beyond the Binary Researchers’

May 7, 2019

We invite researchers from all disciplines as well as museum and heritage professionals for an exclusive inside-look into the museum’s new Beyond the Binary project. Alongside the project team and TORCH’s Queer Studies Network, participants will have the chance to examine objects in the museum’s collection that spark important conversations around global LGBTQ+ cultures and museum methodologies. We will be exploring different approaches to interpreting these objects, including phenomenological practices and public engagement. Additionally, the session will provide opportunities for participants to be directly involved in and/or help shape this vital and innovative project, which centres collaboration with the LGBTQ+ community. We will look at the different ways existing museum and heritage collections can be re-interpreted through a queer lens to tell old and new stories alike as well as thinking about how current and future collecting practices can be shaped to preserve both tangible and intangible queer heritage for future generations.

The venue has step-free access but if you have any further requirements please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Lunch will be provided with vegan and gluten free options available. Please do let us know if you have any allergies.

Date & venue: 10am – 1pm, 30 May, Research Space, Pitt Rivers Museum
